What is Creative Friends?

Looking for something to do during the winter months? Want the flexibility to create where and when it suits you? Want to express yourself creatively that brings a purpose? Then this project is for you!

Age UK Worcester and Malvern Hills invites you to join an exciting FREE intergenerational project that allows you to connect creatively with others from your local community. Whether you are an individual, community group, care home or school, everyone can become a Creative Friend.

Age UK Worcester & Malvern Hills are delighted to partner with Spare Room Arts, Worcestershire County Council, Action For Children and Starting Well Partnership to launch the Creative Friends porject. This project connects different generations together to provide companionship and meaningful activities this winter.


How it works?

Creative Friends allows those to take part from the comfort and warmth of their home and there is no need for internet or art experience to take part. This is an opportunity to create a piece of art that expresses personal thoughts and feelings that be exchanged to a Creative Friend.

  • Get paired with your new Creative Friend
  • We will send you the project theme and ark kit with supplies to use
  • Create a piece of artwork for your Creative Friend that expresses the theme given to you
  • Support from lead artist from Spare Room Arts
  • Final creation will be swapped with your creative friend at the end of March
  • No experience needed

Throughout the project we will be running a Creative Friends Cafe across Worcestershire. This is where Spare Room Arts will lead you through a fun intergenerational art workshop. By coming along, you will have the chance to meet other Creative Friends, enjoy refreshments together and learn new art skills that you can apply to your final Creative Friends art piece.
